: : Kevin Kiernan, the state's winningest high school girls basketball coach, earned career victory No. 799 with Mater Dei's 87-43 nonleague triumph Tuesday at Aliso Niguel.

: : Alyssa Frescas had 21 points and Brooke Demetre added 15 points for Mater Dei (24-2), ranked No. 4 in the state by Cal-Hi Sports. Soleil Montrose contributed nine points for the Monarchs, who won their eighth in a row overall.

: : Kiernan coached at Westminster La Quinta from 1985-90, Troy from 1997-2007 and has been at Mater Dei from 2008 to the present.

: : Kiernan, who is 799-102 in his 28th season coaching high school girls basketball, will have his first opportunity to earn victory No. 800 at 7:30 p.m. Friday when Mater Dei plays host to Bishop Gorman of Las Vegas (15-9) at the Nike Extravaganza at Meruelo Athletic Center.

: : Kiernan would become the 32nd all-time high school girls basketball coach in the country to reach 800 career victories, including the 10th active coach, according to the NFHS Record Book.

:
: he hit the 800 mark a few years back.... Friday will be his 800th win on the girls side in HS . He has coached boys and was at cypress college for a few years as well.

Well aware of that, hence the 7-year gap between coaching at La Quinta and coaching at Troy. That's why it says he will be the 32nd coach nationally and 10th active coach to earn 800 girls basketball victories.
